Why does he need boots anyway?
So, we have the third installment of the Mikey series. Might be the last as well.
It isn’t even a classical jump and run anymore. This time you float.
Thats right, Mikey goes flappy bird. Of course its far more accessible, and you can also float in both directions.
It still feels like a Mikey game though, it has the same scoring mechanics, like Mikey Shorts and Mikey Hooks. Your primal goal in each level is still getting through it alive, collecting all coins, not getting any damage and be fast – then you earn your precious three stars. In average that task felt a bit easier then in the other Mikeys, its still quite challenging and sometimes a bit frustrating.
42 Levels – still if you are not aiming for perfect, the game wont last too long. It also has a lot of custimizations again, though they feel somewhat pointless, why would you want to wear silly costumes in a single player game, and why even pay for costume dlcs.
Theres really not that much to say about Mikey Boots, the graphics are a bit nicer than the other mikeys, but still rather functional. the level design is okay, the controls are quite good. Once you have three-starred everything, theres not much reason to play the game again.
Mikey Boots is a nice game, it still feels like a mikey game even though its technically not a jump’n run – or even a platformer anymore. If you enjoyed the first two mikeys you are most likely to enjoy this one too, though it plays a bit different, but if you like these kind of challenges, you won’t be disappointed.
